Maleficent | Elizabeth Rudnick

I don‘t keep my books very long after I read them. So I don‘t have copies of old favorites to show that I haven‘t shown 1000x before. So instead I will show you my #oldfavorite dragon that I have had for over 20 years that watches over all my books. Someplace Wicket (who is at least 30) is also standing guard.

Watchers | Dean Koontz

This was the first Dean Koontz book I ever read. It was recommended to me by my dad, who also loves to read. I‘ve read this one a few times. I still love it.

Agatha Christie is definitely one of them. I‘ve binge read them during my high school and college years, sadly I didn‘t have any of those books back in the days as I mainly borrowed them from my library but these are two of them from 2nd hand stores, love this edition. I need a reread soon tho since I‘ve forgotten most of the plots😅

rretzler @erzascarletbookgasm @freespirit @BooknerdsLife 💕 Mine as well. I‘m happy to say that I have paperback copies of all of her novels and most of the short story collections. I had some great covers that I had collected in elementary and middle school, but my mom threw them away when I went to college, so I had to start the collection over again. 🤣 Definitely comfort reads for me. 8mo
rretzler I tried an Agatha Christie quiz in QuizUp awhile ago and I couldn‘t recall many details either. I also probably need a reread at some point but it would take a long time! 🤣 8mo
Freespirit I think @rretzler my retirement plan will be to read them all again😍 8mo
rretzler @Freespirit Sounds like a good plan! There are so many books that I want to reread, yet my stack of books I want to read grows exponentially! I‘m sure everyone on Litsy knows the feeling! 8mo
BooknerdsLife @rretzler @Freespirit Hahaaa That‘s a perfect plan 👌🏼 One I‘ll be looking forward to 🤗😍 It would be like reading a new book all over again since I‘ve forgotten most of the plots 🤣 7mo
BooknerdsLife @rretzler OMG Same! My mom had thrown away all the books I‘ve collected during my earlier years when I was in College! I‘m still sad about it and have been trying to collect them very very slowly ...have gotten some newer ones for my daughter & I‘ve vowed to never do the same thing to my daughter‘s books! 😆 7mo
rretzler I‘m the same way...I‘ve learned from my mother‘s mistakes. I buy both of my sons their own copies of books they want, so we do have 3+ copies of some books in our house now. And when they are ready to leave our house, the books will go with them! 🤣 7mo
BooknerdsLife @rretzler OH! You‘re smart!😆👍🏼 I haven‘t thought about getting each of us a copy lol Now who will get the books when she moves out? 😱😂 I do have multiple editions of some Classics books...I guess she can pick from those 😄 7mo

#OldFavorite @howjessreads#30JuneBooks

I devoured Choose Your Own Adventure books in elementary school and love that my own ten year old son has "discovered" them recently. His teacher even had the students try writing their own short stories in this style. Everything old becomes new again! ?

Soubhiville I loved these too! 8mo

Beautiful, classic, old school Narnia before the advent of the move tie-in book cover hype. These are the covers I grew up with.

Crazeedi Great great covers!❤ 8mo
KatieDid927 Also before they started publishing them with the numbers out of order. A huge pet peeve of mine. 8mo
LiterRohde @KatieDid927 You and me both. Chronological order takes away the magic! 8mo

Melwilk I still have that set from my childhood 😊 8mo
KatieDid927 @LiterRohde 100%. If that‘s the order he meant them to be read in, that‘s the order he‘d have published them in! Silliness. 8mo
LiterRohde @KatieDid927 After saying these are the only real covers and this is the only way to read them, and while I stand by those statements, I do feel a little like a metaphorical old guy on a metaphorical lawn telling some metaphorical kids to get off. And yet sorry, not sorry. 8mo
KatieDid927 @LiterRohde I purposefully went out and bought used copies of this set until it was complete for the same reason. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 8mo
SW-T Those are the ones I have also 😊 8mo
BooknerdsLife Love this edition 😍 8mo
Soubhiville These are on my shelves too! Well loved and very well read! 8mo
Clare-Dragonfly I have those somewhere. I was given the box set for Christmas when I was a kid. Love them. 🥰 8mo
Clare-Dragonfly @KatieDid927 @LiterRohde Sometimes when I reread, I go in chronological order for funsies. But it‘s not as good and I don‘t think any new reader should start with Nephew! 8mo
KatieDid927 @Clare-Dragonfly Agreed! I think especially with rereads people can read in whatever order they want, I just do not like that they‘re now published and numbered in the chronological (incorrect! 😜) order. 8mo
Nute So happy to see this post. That is the same set that I have from childhood.🙂 8mo

Day 8: #oldfavorite 🥰

The Maximum Ride series has been one of my favorites for years and years!! I read book 1, “The Angel Experiment,” in middle school, and I speedily read through the following 8 books as they were released! As a teen, I considered Max a beloved heroine 🤩🦅

Day 7 & 8 of #30JuneBooks
My #bookstack and #oldfavorite are Archie Comics! As a kid I had boxes and boxes of Archie comics. I'm super excited that my kiddo is obsessed with these comics too. ♥️

Kdgordon88 I loved these growing up! 8mo

tpixie Great memories!! The memories and feelings are in your heart, and just looking at the photo will bring it out!!! And you saved space for other books in your home! ♥️🥳📚 8mo
BarbaraJean Ohhhh, I loved these, too!! 8mo

merelybookish Great editions! I can see why you wish you'd kept them! (I did not read Blyton as a kid and get the sense she doesn't work as well for adults. Have you ever tried to re-read her?) 8mo
TrishB I still have mine ❤️ I loved these so much. 8mo
erzascarletbookgasm Some books have stayed with me, and I think I‘ll be happy to reread these, but not some of her other books, though...lots of bad stereotypes..but then we‘ll have to recognise times were different then. @merelybookish 8mo
erzascarletbookgasm @tpixie great memories indeed! You made me feel much better 😘 8mo
tpixie @erzascarletbookgasm good!! ♥️♥️♥️🥳🥳🥳 8mo
BarbaraJean @merelybookish @erzascarletbookgasm I re-read a few of this series as an adult and enjoyed them, but I think it was more nostalgia value than anything else. I recently bought a collected edition of her Faraway Tree series, since I hadn‘t read it as a child, and am interested to see how I like it first-time as an adult! 8mo
erzascarletbookgasm @BarbaraJean yes on the nostalgia part..❤️ I liked the Faraway Tree and Wishing Chair series when I was young. Will be curious to know your thoughts on reading it first time now. 🙂 8mo
HKGirl I loved these too! I never did have my own copies though -- just borrowed them from the library every time I read them. 8mo
LeahBergen 😍😍😍 8mo
JillR Oh I loved this series so so much. I‘m about to introduce 8 year old Bella 🤞 8mo
JillR Ps I have to say I‘m not going to read them with her as I‘ve found the Enid Blyton I‘ve read with both kids so far hasn‘t quite lived up to my memories 🙁 8mo
Nute This type of post might be my favorite. I enjoy seeing the books that readers read in their youth and visiting memory lane. It‘s so touching and heartfelt!💕 8mo
